Apparently MAFIA III will be set in Louisiana.



Source: http://www.allgamesbeta.com/2014/03/characters-of-unannounced-take-two.html

What do you think ?

Trivia: Did you know New Orleans is the place of origin for Mafia in America ?

So with this I am no longer worry about the new studio taking over MAFIA series since they're showing their passion on the series with this.

To make things even more interesting, 3 years ago in the same month, casting call for GTA V was made.

And it only takes them 7 months after for them to officially announce the game. I think this suggests the announcement for MAFIA III will be coming this year.

Amazing news! Let's hope we have an announcement before 2015 hits.

Very interesting article. Thanks for sharing!
I wonder how many people have signed up for these roles. I imagine lots of emails and phone calls coming in. If I weren't Dutch and lived in/near L.A., I would've loved to apply. Smile

Very nice find, although I'm not sure about Louisiana or one of the tradition Mafia trio being black (not a racist comment Laughing).

If what you say is true, mflh, they've certainly done their research, although I imagine the Mafia life to be played out in high-rise sky scraper cities like Lost Heaven, Chicago, New York etc.
It would also be a shame to see it set in an era other than the 20s-40s, after that it's common knowledge that the organisation rapidly declined because of drugs, rules not being adhered to, etc.

Still, fingers crossed!

It's registered with Take-Two rather than 2K so it's possible this isn't even connected to the Mafia series.

I have to agree, I don't think this is anything to do with Mafia III
at all.

It has been said that Mafia 3, after transfering development resources to California, is made ​​from scratch. So I highly doubt it.

I have my doubts this is in any way related to the mafia franchise,

looks like it could be some sort of gta clone, though.

Why would they have a black character named Franklin immediately after GTA had a black character named franklin? That would just be blatantly stupid.

If the information were legit, I think New Orleans would be a welcome change of pace for open world games of this genre, though.

the new york/los angeles archetype is getting old.
